Twist of Fate x2
The premise of this deck is to flood resources (Hidden Outpost, Fleet Command Center, Mon Mothma) and build card advantage (Mission Briefing, A-Wing, You're My Only Hope, Stolen Plans) to swarm you opponent with Y-Wings and Vehicles with Astromech Droid Upgrade to get lots of blast damage on the table.  Home One and Ackbar are your bombs.  But the real premise of the deck is to get Leia on the table, and subsequently off the table.  This can be done with You're My Only Hope and Covering Fire.  Once you've established an army capable of taking out an objective the idea is to attack an objective with everything, use one of the above cards to sac Leia putting her under an objective then attack that objective to get Leia back.  Combined with cards like Red Two and Wookie Smuggler (who isn't in the deck but I keep wanting to find a way to work in) it's possible with some luck to destroy 3 objectives in one turn.
What do you think?

For the people who like links.

Affiliation: Rebel Alliance

Objective Sets (10):
2 The Defense of Yavin 4
1 Mission Briefing
2 Fleeing the Empire
2 The Rebel Fleet
1 Draw Their Fire
2 Mobilize the Squadrons

Personally, I'm a really big fan of Hit and Run and its Dark Side counterpart, Reconnaissance Mission, and try to fit them in if I can, especially in a single-affiliation deck like this one. Out of your objectives here, I think the least useful one is going to be Draw Their Fire, so I'd swap that with a Hit and Run. If you don't like Hit and Run, I'd still take out Draw Their Fire for another Mission Briefing. X-Wing Escort and Heroic Sacrifice are situational, and I'd much rather have another chance at getting to Heavy Blaster Emplacement, Battlefield Engineers, and A-Wing than have a single Admiral Ackbar in the deck.

Other than that, it looks pretty good. Let me know how Fleeing the Empire works out for you, I'm not running it in my Rebel deck.

The +1 reserve can really help help when you are in edge battles.
